Please pray for Andrew, a teen with issues...
« on: September 07, 2012, 09:21:41 AM »

Please, I beg your prayers for a teenage boy, Andrew, who is having some major issues.

(If interested see: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,46824.msg802326.html#msg802326)

He's gotten even worse since yesterday, and went to school in tears this morning.


May God help Andrew, grant him strength to overcome these issues, grant him peace of mind, good health and joy in his life.

God, he's a great kid, please, help him as only You can!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord have mercy. Holy Saint Andrew pray for him.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
